a strong standard-bearer once president obama step downs four years from now, and president obama's popularity is now the highest it has been since the first few months he was in office. today's poll numbers are a reflection of the president's inauguration speech when he spoke boldly of progressive values in the country. i'm joined tonight by joy reid, managing editor of the grio. i mean, if she were to run, if she were to announce, wouldn't there be just this groundswell enthusiasm because we know she is so qualified? >> well, i think partly because of her clear and obvious qualifications, but also, hillary-land has a pent-up desire for this woman that has never gone away there was tremendous resentment between obama and hillary camps in 2008 partly because her supporters are so passionate about the idea that she should be our first woman president. it was very hard for them to walk away from that. there was a big push to get her on the ticket, to be vice president. they were disappointed that didn't happen. she then takes the job of secretary of state and really acquitted hersel

up or shut up, d-day. in a shattering moment this afternoon, president obama threw down the gauntlet. he demanded congress pass a potent immigration reform bill, one that fixes the problem of decades, deals with the 12 million people here illegally, stops the illegal hiring and exploitation of workers. so the challenge is out there right now right there in tonight's news packed and ready for tomorrow's newspapers. will it explode into action, light a firecracker under the republicans? will it detonate an avalanche of action driving teeth into the reform, ending the perennial talk that's led to nothing or to the old bogus reforms of the past? will the politicians get real or play more games of ethnic fear, economic exploitation, and wedge politics? was today the end of all that? could that be possible? let's take a hard look with chuck todd. you heard all my questions. i'm older than you, i have been through simpson/mazzoli. i know we're laughing about -- >> i love it's getting a comeback. >> we've tried it all before. we've passed bills that said it's got teeth in it and it's got amn
